Vicious And Dismissive – Steve Bannon SLAMS EU Attitude To Brexit Britain
Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon has slammed the EU’s treatment of Brexit Britain as being vicious and dismissive. Mr Bannon is in Rome awaiting the outcome of the Italian elections where the anti-establishment, Eurosceptic M5S and anti-immigration League Party are both expected to perform well with the M5S topping the last legally allowed poll as we reported last night.
Mr Bannon said that the strong performances by both parties during the campaign typified the nationalist and populist revolt which propelled Mr Trump into the White House and secured victory for the Leave campaign in the EU Referendum.
Brussels has been vicious and dismissive (towards Britain). The contempt that Brussels has shown for the mandate of the working men and women of Great Britain, who want out, has been to me nothing short of shocking.
They haven’t accommodated anything, they have made everything as tough as possible. It’s not even been a negotiation. It’s been by fiat.
He warned Italians to expect similar treatment:
I would say to the Italians, look at how Brussels has responded to the mandate the British people gave their government to get out (of the EU).
Eighteen months later, the British have very little to show as far as exit negotiations go.
Mr Bannon is in Italy to witness what he believes to be the “cutting edge” of the populist revolution. Let’s hope Italian voters today deliver another bloody nose to Brussels.
